One of our goals is to expand prevention research training of practitioners, community members, and students from public health, medicine, nursing, and other disciplines. The UWPRC is partnering with key prevention training programs, certificates, and courses to enhance and expand prevention research training. Through training and collaboration across programs to enhance prevention research education, we can grow the capacity for prevention health research.
The UWPRC offers prevention and health equity training opportunities for public health students, medical students, or postdoctoral fellows to establish a pipeline of applied prevention researchers skilled in community engagement. Our center is working to expand training of community and public health practitioners to bring a focus on evaluation, dissemination, and implementation of evidence-based programs and policies. Like all elements of the UWPRC, trainings and collaborations take a health equity approach and build research and community capacity in translation of policy and system’s prevention strategies.
